Hello! Here are some hints for getting the most out of your contest as it progresses:

~~ Rank designs daily -- this will encourage participation.
~~ Rank a variety of designs to get a variety of entries.
~~ Ranking gets your contest noticed! Unless your contest is Private, 1st place entries are posted to the portfolio page: http://logotournament.com/portfolio
~~ Leave private feedback by clicking on a design. Feedback will be made public upon contest completion
~~ The more feedback you provide, the better results you will see.
~~ Designers are not offended by "Not Interested".
~~ Over-use of "Not Interested" discourages participation.
~~ Designers earn points for designs ranked 1st - 10th. We like to earn points.
~~ After your contest closes it will enter Judging phase. You can re-rank designs in Judging.
~~ While in Judging, the designer ranked in first place can submit revisions

The submissions are starting to look better and better.

#1 #2 #3: I definitely like #3 the most out of these three, and the logo with the M is cool

#7 #8: Really cool design and I like the addition of the arrow. Of the two, my preference is #7 though. I'd like to request one thing just to see how it looks. Could you make the "Mt." smaller, and either put it as a badge at the top-left of bottom-left? It doesn't have to be super small, just proportionately smaller than "Gox".

Great job so far people! Thanks for your efforts ;)

Bah ... the only payment method from this service when paying the winner is by PayPal.

Payment in bitcoins would be so much more convenient.

@sgornick: People who use bitcoins are mainly coders, investors and misc people. I guess most graphic designers prefer old paypal with old currency.

Bitcoin could solve quite a few problems we face here with our current payment system. I'm sure it would cause some others, but I could see the design industry adopting it in the near term.
